Rep. Aldridge, family plead not guilty to grand larceny

TUPELO — State Rep. Brian Aldridge and his parents pleaded not guilty to charges that they took property from a relative and converted it to their personal use.

Brian Aldridge, a 36-year-old Republican from Tupelo, has been charged with one count of grand larceny.

Aldridge’s father, Louis Aldridge, 64, is charged with three counts embezzlement and his mother Janice Aldridge, 61, is charged with two counts of embezzlement. The couple is divorced.

If convicted, each defendant faces up to 10 years in prison per each count.

They remain free on $5,000 bonds each.

The three were arraigned Friday in Lee County Circuit Court. Circuit Judge Thomas Gardner says the case is scheduled for trial during the October term of court.

If convicted, Aldridge would have to resign from the House.

  1. This is the shallowest article I have ever seen. Why bother to post it if no details. Who owned the property? How was it taken from them? Where is the property located? What did they use the property for? WEAK
